Independent cinema at it's best. Always packed with enthusiastic patrons while the big chains around the corner echo the emptiness. It has a fabulous bar that serves delicious food. A regular Saturday night haunt now!

Quirky cinema that shows mixture of mainstream and art house films. Good bar/cafe attached that serves til late. Relaxed/PC place ie a single woman could sit with a glass of wine and a book and not feel out of place

With one of the widest programmes on offer, probably the best cinema around. And beer and food too? It just gets better.

My 'friend' and I went to see an awful French film about a boy whose Dad hated him. After losing and then very quickly finding his bike and stirring some sauce, he moved in with a hairdresser, initially just for weekends, and later also for barbecues and dry rolls. The highlight of the film experience was when my 'friend' swapped places with me so I could read the subtitles without having to strain my neck. I also enjoyed all the hand-holding, snuggling and occasional neck-biting that went on. Despite this seemingly mixed review so far, I have rated The Filmhouse a five, as the food was superb and I have rarely if ever seen so many pensioners in one place devouring potatoes and chilli with such gusto. My tip is to see a better film but make sure you do eat here - it's consistently good.
